They're back, and as you'd expect, it's high quality, high content. Can't wait to see what these guys have up their sleeves... @12ozprophet @12ozprophet @12ozprophet
I've been dealing with some heavy, dark crap over the last month, and I've neglected the one bit of therapy that helps - riding a bike. This morning the wife asked if I was going for a ride but I quickly realized she wasn't asking, she was telling. I really needed today to go well but after a long climb, and a few minutes into the fun bits, I pinch-flatted. No spare tube, nothing. At least it was nice to be in the middle of the woods where it's peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.
These could be celebration drinks... time will tell.
- a look back at those early years when I first started experimenting with abstract Graffiti. This one was done in the @tribalstreetwear warehouse in San Diego in the early 90s. Regram from @kenshade619abhfo
- A few months back I did some script/type drawings for my previous employer that was to be used for their social media account, to celebrate Diversity in Design. Some phrases were taken from answers to questions asked of employees, and there were questions about favorite drinks, first job, favorite artist, and languages spoken. It was a really fun project because of my love for drawing letters. All of these were done on an iPad.
A little light sketching to get the morning moving in the right direction...
No doubt, you will be seeing a lot of tribute posts for Cool Disco Dan, today. For writers in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area he's an iconic person in their history, and will always be part of who they are as writers. Cool Disco Dan was, is, and always will be legendary... rest easy, my friend.
- ASCENDANCE_v2 / 20x20x2 / Layers cut from Russian birch / One of three pieces that was made this Spring for a group show at Scream Gallery in London. All three pieces are available, please PM for details.
- October 1991 - I was heavily inspired by my mentor at the time @raevyn_tws when I drew this piece for RUST.
I come home to gifts... Thursday is officially awesome. Thanks @adamfu and @mylifeinletterspodcast !! If you haven't listened to part one of my interview with My Life In Letters, definitely check it out and listen to how awkward I am. Part two coming later this year...
Details from four 72"x72" new canvases for a friend. Can't wait to get these framed and hung...
When I start a letter study I usually try to convey the form of the letter in the simplest way I can. My thought process is to break down the build up of extra bars, doo-dads, and extensions that wild and semi-wild Graffiti has and show a stylized, abstract letter form using as little camouflage as possible. The overall goal is to end up with a wild or semi-wild letter with only a few lines. And to be honest, it's just a fun exercise.
A carbon wheel graphic I was goofin' around with. Went full-on 80s with it...
